  1. Ramis? REALLY GOD? REALLY?

  2. Spent the ady yesterday at the multiplex while my truck was being worked on. 3 Days To Kill was completely forgetable, even though I enjoyed the script last year. Robocop wa a steaming turd. My passion is the craft of screenwriting. I'm a movie nut. I'm a story junkie. I'm a script hound. So why is that I can't remember the last time a film actually satisfied me... I have high hopes for Noah, even though Hollywood (Sodom and Gomorrah) looks like it's trimmed the ev...

      It's not a looking over my shoulder at the last decade and complaining, it's a crap and more crap thing. And sbbn, there was a pretty good "get off my lawn" movie - Clint Eastwood's Gran Turino!!!

  7. Even though working night shift sucks balls sometimes, at least with my new schedule, i'll be able to actively manage my time and WRITE more often than I am now which is daily but, you know, more time during my everyday life to devote to writing. :)

      True Detective is so good it makes my bones hurt. Every line is absolutely delicious and devastating.

  9. What is the best Drama, Thriller or Action spec that you have read recently, that is still available?

  10. A famous actor goes on the run after he comes under suspicion for being connected (usually by six degrees) to every murder victim in the country. Kevin Bacon is... GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION!

  11. Have an action packed night of TV planned with new episodes of 'The Walking Dead', 'True Detective' and 'Black Sails'. That's some must watch TV!

  16. Gizmado is listing the best Cyber Monday deals, and I'm interested in a e-reader 'cause it's so damn cheap ($39). Has anyone had experience with a Nook Simple Touch? Might it be a good entry into an e-reader for PDF scripts? http://gizmodo.com/the-best-cyber-monday-deals-1474441564/@shanerobertscommerce

  21. Looking for Black List 2005-07 scripts

  22. In preparation for the final episode, I rewatched the Breaking Bad pilot. It's amazing how well written that show is from the get-go. THAT is how a pilot is supposed to be written.
